React.js Boilerplate vs React 360: What are the differences?

What is React.js Boilerplate? 🔥 Quick setup for performance orientated, offline-first React.js apps. Quick setup for new performance orientated, offline–first React.js applications featuring Redux, hot–reloading, PostCSS, react-router, ServiceWorker, AppCache, FontFaceObserver and Mocha.

What is React 360? Create exciting 360 and VR experiences using React (By Facebook). It is a framework for the creation of interactive 360 experiences that run in your web browser. It pairs modern APIs like WebGL and WebVR with the declarative power of React, producing applications that can be consumed through a variety of devices. Leveraging web technologies and the existing React ecosystem, React 360 aims to simplify the construction of cross-platform 360 experiences.

React.js Boilerplate and React 360 can be categorized as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

Some of the features offered by React.js Boilerplate are:

  • Using react-transform-hmr, your changes in the CSS and JS get reflected in the app instantly without refreshing the page. That means that the current application state persists even when you change something in the underlying code! For a very good explanation and demo, watch Dan Abramov himself talking about it at react-europe.
  • Redux is a much better implementation of a flux–like, unidirectional data flow. Redux makes actions composable, reduces the boilerplate code and makes hot–reloading possible in the first place. For a good overview of redux, check out the talk linked above or the official documentation!
  • Babel is a modular JavaScript transpiler that helps to use next generation JavaScript and more, like transformation for JSX, hot loading, error catching etc. Babel has a solid ecosystem of offical preset and plugins.

On the other hand, React 360 provides the following key features:

  • JSX
  • Cross Platform
  • Variety of 360 and 3D media

React.js Boilerplate and React 360 are both open source tools. It seems that React.js Boilerplate with 25.1K GitHub stars and 5.24K forks on GitHub has more adoption than React 360 with 8K GitHub stars and 1.15K GitHub forks.
